Me Playing – Do you think you could play the audio (at low volume) to the game when we play the video for the stream? It is muted enough that I think the podcast listeners would enjoy it as background music and may help set the mood.

Garden tools to solve plantastic puzzles, meet eccentric vegetables and fruits, and take on treacherous fights. Along the journey uncover what’s spoiling this garden community and rise to tear down the corrupt vegetable government!
EXPERIENCE
Zelda Like! Avoid the rotten! Avenge your father’s Death. Talk to Sentient and Charming Fruits and Vegetables that make up the world in Turnip Boy. Avoid Paying taxes. Perform fetch quests. Battle bosses. Perform delivery quests. Rip It Up! Steal old man lemon’s watering can! Earn a shovel. Dig up bodies. Solve Puzzles. Water a Watermelon. Push a Watermelon. Teleport to other parts of the screen. Uncover mysteries! Like…what happened to the humans?! Equip passive equipment like boots, fireproof clothing and etc to complete tasks. Unlock areas. Report back to Mayor Onion who is extorting you for his tasks around town because you haven’t paid your taxes! But who are you going to tell? You don’t talk. Hell you don’t even have arms.
Boop’s Patented 10 Point Rating System
Art/Animation: Pixel based cuteness exploration and combat. Smooth line dialogue characters.
Music/Effects: Area’s have their own themes. Sound effects are serviceable.
V/O: not in this turnip world…besides…what would Onion even sound like?
World Building: Just enough world building to set context for your quest and/or battle. Post Human world with sentient vegetation.
Currency/Loot: No real currency to speak of. We are avoiding taxes so that is probably a good thing. Loot is typically for fulfilling fetch quests
AI/NPCs: NPC Dialogue is “if this then that” basic. NPC pretty much stay put. AI is cycles of action with the AI being drawn to your character’s location for battle.
Controls: This was the most frustrating part of the game for me. Switching between items is a real pain and stop the action entirely…but not too unlike a Zelda like. However, there are some boss fights that require a lot of switching of weapons unlike Zelda. Also, not always responsive to button mashing and that caused some confusion on my part as to if I had actually hit the correct button.
Interface:
Replay/Endgame: This is a game you will play once and then will be done. It’s pun nature is the draw here. Escape for a few hours and put it to rest.
Score: 7 and half turnips out of 10 tax evasions
